Currently in green light mode on her third feature, formal storytelling will once again receive the boundary pushing nip and tuck inventiveness of Kitty Green who arguably gave us one of the best films of 2017 with Casting JonBenet. Here she makes a move into narrative features with a hot potato item that may make Steven Shainberg’s Secretary feel pedestrian and will certainly bring out the horror from the seductive folklore texts a la Biskind’s Down and Dirty Pictures. A timely project that saw Green extensively research “hundreds of public records and documents, and conducting scores of interviews, collecting a huge reservoir of impressions of the lived, daily experience of decades of work experience of the hundreds of employees subjected to the work environment dominated by Weinstein,” the POV will likely be an amalgamation of several of Harvey Weinstein’s assistants (ode to her previous works), and Deadline reported that Julia Garner would possibly topline the project. Scott Macaulay and James Schamus are producing.
Gist: This is a look at the day in the life of an assistant to disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Release Date/Prediction: We could easily see this first quarter shoot translating into a third quarter Venice Film Festival competition release with Sundance 2020 looking to nab the title if more post prod time is needed.
